Pasta Salad with Lemon Tuna (serves 2)
- 175 gr pasta (a small variety works best, I used mini penne)
- 1 can of tuna
- 125 gr cherry tomatoes
- about half a lemon
- couple of handful of peas
- some fresh parsley
- 50 ml olive oil extra vergine
- handful of rocket leaves
- salt & pepper
Boil the pasta. Grate and squeeze half a lemon. Add olive oil, some salt & pepper and whisk it together for a nice dressing. Add canned tuna, and mash with a fork. Chop the parsley, half the cherry tomatoes. Toss that in the dressing together with the peas. Leave it to rest for a bit so the flavours can develop.
Drain the pasta and toss it in while it is still warm. If you want a cold salad, leave it to cool all together.
Add the rocket leaves just before eating.
Also nice with some green beans. Add those together with the pasta.
